I thought his manifesto rang true in many ways, but he also, you know, tried to murder his family and then tried to fly a plane into a building.

I don't think he was crazy. I do think he was either incredibly stupid or evil.

i will say that we should know the facts, first.

but if it plays out how it appears, it's a clear act of domestic terrorism.

Just wanted to add that maybe it's not accurate that only foreigners are labeled as "terrorists". I was just thinking about Bill Ayers, who I think is a hero for protesting the Vietnam War. I don't think he intended to kill any one and he didn't.

but he seems to lean to the left, so he's naturally a bad guy.

I guess it's not quite as explicit as CNN was making it out to be, but he's drawing a connection between this act and the rational anger people feel toward Washington's politicians.

Oh, I didn't know. I never got a chance to read it. I just heard that he didn't like Obama or Michelle Obama, and these things didn't seem to ever happen during Bush's years. Thanks for correcting me.

well, Republicans have been known to express sympathy for people who might assassinate "activist" judges, so we shouldn't be all that surprised.

Could you provide a link to the manifesto. I'd like to read it.
That's the thing; most terrorists have some kind of point, but they deal with it through rage and sometimes that's justified and sometimes it's not.

I remember my brother telling me that Timothy McVeigh saying that he saw little difference between what he did in Oklahoma and what he was ordered to do in Iraq and he was right about that. Yet because of what he'd done, Mike Wallace completely ignored the logic of his argument; I guess this is an example of someone on the right getting labeled correctly, though it's regrettable that the media didn't try harder to understand him.

I was just shocked that Brown and others were going out of their way to humanize the guy, while doing the opposite if it's a minority, foreigner, or someone on the left.

could you tell us which acts of terror are justified and which ones aren't?

i'm going to assume he meant sometimes the point is justified, not the means of expressing the rage.
